Miley Cyrus reaches out to Leo Varadkar

Over the weekend Miley Cyrus tweeted Leo Varadkar.

She called for countries to unite against COVID-19 and the 'racial injustice of health inequalities.'

The tweet read, 'All across Ireland citizens joined in solidarity with Black Lives Matter in the US.'

'We must stay united with the world to tackle #COVID19 and the racial injustice of health inequalities. Please join us, PM Leo Varadkar? #GlobalGoalUnite'

The celebrity also reached out to a number of other world leaders.

These included Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez, Dutch PM Mark Rutte, and Italian PM Giuseppe Conte.

Leo Varadkar gave an interview to the Sunday World this week in which he responded to Miley.

He said, 'I welcome Miley, or indeed anyone, reaching out to me.'

'We don’t have any data on whether COVID has affected black and minority ethnic group people more than white people in Ireland the way it has in America and Britain. We need to find out.'

The Fine Gael leader continued, 'The information we have is that COVID has affected affluent households in Ireland more than disadvantaged ones which is very different to America and Britain.'

Varadkar finished by saying, 'Black Lives Matter.'
